Hans Verhaegen creates paintings, drawings, prints, collages and computer animations. A brush, a pencil or writing code in a computer program, all allow him to experiment with forms and colors.
Since 2000 his work is characterized by Tetris-like human figures presented in clear grids or in complex abstract configurations. Short pieces of computer code produce animations that generate prints and videos. Somewhere between chaotic order and calculated intuition the recurrent basic human form gives the animations and prints a very bright and often humorous tone but also betray a slightly darker vision on the human condition.
His hybrid work oscillates between the screen, the canvas and the exhibition space. A computer animation can be presented as a standalone installation or might be used to produce new work on paper produced in small editions and available for sale.
